Arena football fans might have come to cheer for the Arizona Rattlers, but they yelled the loudest for dance choreographer Oscar Hernandez.

In the middle of a halftime performance by the Rattlers' cheerleading squad the Sidewinders, the women received another player on the field who just wanted to dance.

Although he wore the uniform and sported the size of a linebacker, the 6'2", 280-pound man was actually the one who composed the dance. He proceeded to shock the audience with his stellar moves and his surprising splits.

Sporting News profiled the dancer after his YouTube success:

Hernandez is the man behind many dances you may have already seen, even if he looks like he should be running into and over people instead of telling them where to stand and step. He's been dancing since age 5, cheered and danced at Apollo High School in Glendale, Ariz., and in 2002, broke into the business as a dancer and choreographer with the Phoenix Suns. He's never played a down of football, but still gets mistaken for someone who has.

Hernandez has worked with dozens of professional teams since 2002 — the Nuggets, Warriors, Sonics, Blazers, Pistons, Cowboys, Arizona Cardinals and Lions among them. He helped choreograph the 2009 NBA All-Star Game halftime show in Phoenix.



Here's a closer view of his action:

An Ohio State football fan doesn't need to walk 19 miles to prove their love, but it doesn't hurt.

That's what Redditor orweezy and some friends decided to do. But they didn't do it for the mileage, they did it to spell out the four most important letters to them.

Orweezy told his story Aug. 17.



My coworker friends and thought it would be cool to start off the football season by mapping and walking the Ohio Script this past weekend and using the stadium as the "I" dotting.

...We got like 8 miles into it and thought.... "you know this would have been better if we biked it" It took us 6 and a half hours of walking but we made a few bar stops so from 6:30am through 2:45pm. We were doing a work competition about fitness and the metrics used was time, so we walked everywhere and I think we just carried it over. I would rather bike it next time for sure.



The Ohio State Buckeyes will kick off their season on Sept. 7.

Real Madrid player and underwear model Cristiano Ronaldo became slightly less ridiculously good looking last week and kicked a soccer ball around with a clueless kid in the streets of Madrid.

He wore a shaggy wig with fake mustache/beard, sunglasses and a baggy sweatsuit, and he carried a blue backpack. Look… he’s just like us!

The two played juggled the ball around a bit without drawing any attention.

He eventually removed his disguise, revealing his true identity to the boy and everyone else in the street who immediately pull out their phones to take pictures.

Before walking away, he gave the boy a hug and signed a ball for him.

A few players on the St. Louis Rams decided to hold a little protest of their own on Sunday, prior to their game against the Oakland Raiders, by entering the field with their arms up to show support for the protesters in Ferguson.

Tavon Austin, Kenny Britt, Stedman Bailey, Jared Cook and Chris Givens all participated in the stunt before pregame introductions, with the coach denying any advance knowledge of it.

The St. Louis Police Officers Association is not amused. They are asking the NFL to issue an apology calling it "tasteless, offensive and inflammatory."

But the Rams are standing by their actions.

"I just think there has be to a change," said Cook. "There has to be change that starts with the people that are most influential around the world."

In their game against the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. caught a pass from Eli Manning with just one hand, scoring a touchdown.

Unfortunately the Giants lost 31-28, but that catch though...

"That is absolutely impossible what he just did," said NBC commentator Cris Collinsworth. "That may be the greatest catch I've ever seen in my life.

The NFL tweeted that Odell's catch basically pulled a Kardashian butt.

And it has also inspired some "Things Odell Could Catch" memes on Twitter.

Notre Dame lost their game against Northwestern last Saturday, and as a result, we all lose.

Because this happened.

Former Notre Dame player and current host of ESPN's "Mike and Mike in the Morning," was forced to pay up on a bet with his co-host Mike Greenberg by re-creating Paper Magazine's Kim Kardashian butt photo.

This Thanksgiving, we are all thankful for that carefully placed bow.

Whoever handles the Patriots' social media is probably not having a very fun Friday at work - assuming they are still employed.

To celebrate their 1 millionth follower on Thursday, the Patriots asked people to retweet an image of a digital jersey to receive a customized version with their Twitter handle on the back.


The account then tweeted out a thank you to an account with an extremely racist username, complete with an accompanying jersey emblazoned with the slur.

They have since deleted the offensive tweet and apologized for the "filtering" error.
